My son's DS is frozen. We bought a generic DC

Has probably corrupted the DS's memory, small though it is. Replace the memory to unfreeze. Alternatively get angry and stamp on it. (2nd method worked on my psp, though not advised.)

Won't charge.

It's either the charger or the charging socket. Take it into your local video games store or use a friends charger to see which one it is

Ds lite comes on for a sec when charger plugged in then it goes of unit does not come on or charge

Hi three things come to mind, you dropped it but usually they wont admit it (dont go mad they usually all break when you do) if it rattles the capacitor under the power switch just fell off (common you have to solder it back on) if not that you replaced the bottom screen and forgot to insulate the metal of the back of the screen against the circuit board and blew either the f1 or f2 fuses (Replace them if you did) last thing i wont go into if you havent pulled it apart if you have reply and i will tell you Good Luck

Charge light orang on for a second and turn off unit not charged.

This kind of problem is usually caused by either of this 3 things: Either the problem is the battery not being able to charge anymore(bettery would need to be replaced), or the charger does not give any charge to the batter(recommend try another charger), or last would be the console charger port( would need to replace console, or repair charger por,not recommended)

Charger socket broken

That little black thing goes into the charger so without it, or something to replace it, you can not charge, unless you somehow found a way to take out the battery and charge it outside of the ds. I would highly recommend sending it back to Nintendo or something like that.

Power problems with DS Lite

Really sounds like a dead battery. The DS will not work if the battery is bad even when it's plugged in. You get the quick flash of the power light and that's it.
